summary This essay codifies and extends contemporary conceptions of systemic organization using architectural case studies within the context of 1950痴 space-time. Given the dominance of certain concerns within the profession of architecture during that time用refabrication and strict modularity葉he selected case studies reveal unprecedented characteristics which anticipate current developments in algorithmic and parametric formation. The projects in question demonstrate sophisticated strategies for differentiated part-to-whole relationships which predate contemporary organizational systems, now derived with the aid of digital computation. Their importance to current architectural discourse lies in distinguishing the manner in which they manifest notions of space-time, including transformation, continuity and modulation, as architects increasingly operate within dexterous and interconnected environments.
